Hi,

Some antivirus or some software running in background may be holding some file handles open in that drive...

Easy solution will be to close those applications and try ejecting again.

Round the way solution will be to disengage all handles to your drive by 'searching for any' using special process manager tools and then ejecting the drive


I hope this will solve your problem

bye

have a nice time

Want to install new WD hard drive into my old computer


You say you see data on disks on your existing system, yet they appear blank when trying to install? Please try to dig a little deeper and find your setup file. Data wouldn't disappear unless your running NTFS now and the disks are FAT.

I have a WD passport external hard drive and I want to download the stored files from my old computer to my new one and I can't open the zipped files?


hi-

do you have a winzip application/program installed on your old computer? try downloading the 7zip app, then try extracting it again. one other cause maybe is that you have a corrupt file, try zipping file again and then transfer it.
